Memphis Artists for Change push for people to get registered to vote

The next local election in Memphis will be Nov. 8, 2022.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Efforts are underway across the county to make sure people are registered to vote in the November election.

Friday, the group Memphis Artists for Change held a press conference at the Shelby County Election Commission's Office as part of a larger push throughout the week to get more people registered to vote.

One of the speakers claimed the Shelby County elections office purged over 100,000 voters, calling it a tactic to suppress votes. They said the effort to get people registered was to fight back against that.

The next local election in Memphis will be Nov. 8, 2022.
